Every Police Detective or Medical Examiner needs a villain to chase week after week – right?  Who better than another immortal with an agenda.  However, what exactly is his agenda?  In the first episode, a mysterious caller wants to know how Dr. Henry Morgan has managed to survive the subway crash. Certain that this shadowy someone knows his deepest secret, Henry decides to run. Lucky for the viewers, Abe talks Henry out of it.
And so begins the battle between good (Henry) and evil (Adam).
I had to ask myself why this second person who claimed the same immortality as Henry didn’t want to meet him, compare notes, and claim a kinship that might help both men find a way out of their current circumstance. After all, neither man is actually looking for death.  Each man merely wants to age gracefully and eventually die.
So, why then did Henry and Adam become instant enemies?  Re-read my first sentence.  Forever needed a villain.
And who better to play Adam than BURN GORMAN.  Born in Hollywood and raised in London, Burn is a man of many facets.  He has donned many roles over his acting career from the gentle Rev. Marley in Larkrise to Candleford to the scarred German officer, Colonel Skorzeny, in Walking with the Enemy. You may remember him as Trask in Revenge or Karl Tanner in Game of Thrones.
Of course, to Forever Fans, Burn Gorman will always be Adam, the immortal enemy of our Dr. Henry Morgan.

As always, I remain -
